KU basketball notebook: Frankamp on fire; latest on Rio Adams

I agree on the Hofstra job...thinking on our "outside family," a job like Hofstra might be a good building block for a guy like Brett Ballard...not sure he would leave the mid-west, but he might have to take a job a ways away to keep moving up.

KU basketball notebook: Frankamp on fire; latest on Rio Adams

the thing I am most impressed with is his attitude...very Tyrel-esque as far as work-ethic and willingness to do whatever it takes to make his TEAM better...his best attribute right now is his shooting, yet he is working on his ball-handling because..."he is preparing to play the point if needed for KU." A teacher from North High said he is a very respectful and humble young man. My worry fades, knowing that we are getting a solid young man who will lead with hard work and a posititve attitude! Those two can go a long way in a season with young guys and a few egos!

McDonald's All-American Wayne Selden next up for KU hoops

Look at the size of Wichita State this year...way smaller line-up than most opponents...rebounding is as much about attitude and effort as it is size.

McDonald's All-American Wayne Selden next up for KU hoops

1- Tharpe and Conner and Mason
2- Selden and Greene and Connor
3- AW3 and Selden
4- Ellis and AW3
5- Traylor and Lucas and Embiid

and this is not accounting for any JUCO transfers or additional pick-ups like Wiggins!

McDonald's All-American Wayne Selden next up for KU hoops

How about an open run and gun...with AW3, Selden, Conner, with Tharpe running the PG and dishing and Traylor and Lucas dominating the boards...every 3-4 minutes...subs and run some more...averaging about 85-90 PPG...and possibly add Wiggins and others into that mix! I am excited to see the team speed and quickness keep improving...#teamhudy!!! Now let's utilize it!

Self not worried by McLemore’s scoring slump

I see the deciding factor in this match-up with Michigan to be fouls! If we can keep our guards and Withey out of foul trouble and really attack their guards, then we can gain the upper hand. The most aggressive team who gets the other side in foul trouble will prevail, IMO. Burke has the tendency to play a little out of control, and once he gets into foul trouble, its like a 180 shift in his attitude. He goes from stud to our best defense real quick like!

AP: Marcus Smart Big 12 player of year; Jeff Withey, Ben McLemore 1st team

I am not sure if anyone else noticed this, but this list is incorrect...Osby made First Team and Pierre Jackson made Second Team...according to the Big 12 website...if Jackson made Second Team, someone explain how?

Danny’s new digs: Manning brings ‘new brand of hoops’ to Tulsa

great list...I totally agree with #3! The Mayor came into The Phog with a perfect gameplan that would have worked out for them if it hadn't been for Mr. McLemore!! The Mayor seems to be getting a lot out of a "mixing pot" of players. If he can recruit consistently, they will continue to rise in the standings and will be a force each year that he is there.

Danny’s new digs: Manning brings ‘new brand of hoops’ to Tulsa

I like the way you think, jaybate! Brett has a great basketball mind! He has learned from the best...Coach Anderson at HHS, Coach Jank at HCC, RoyBoy, Self, and now Manning!
